What is Higher Diploma Computing?

This programme is designed to provide an entry path for Level 8 graduates in other numerate disciplines into graduate entry level careers in computing. The philosophy behind the programme is that Level 8 graduates from other disciplines will have developed significant transferable skills in analysis, communications and independent learning as so will be in a position to learn quickly a focused subset of computing knowledge to level 8. Learners on the programme will acquire core knowledge of computing concepts in the first part of the programme, They will then progress to a deeper knowledge in their chosen specialisation. Specialisations available include Software Development and Information Technology Infrastructure.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
